Question Palm Springs to Santa Barbara?

In our Motorhome and towing toad what would be the best route to travel from Palm Springs to Santa Barbara to avoid the Los Angeles area traffic. It looks like we could take Rt.10 to Rt.215 then Rt.138 to Rt.14 Then Rt.126 to Rt.101. Is that a good way? Or, should I just take Rt.10 to Rt.210 to Rt.118.

And, are there any good campgrounds between Carpinteria and Santa Barbara?

If you depart Palm Springs at 9:00 AM and take the 10 to the 210 you should be ok.

10W-57N-210W-134W-101N is good also, the trick is timing, you want to be on the 101 by 1pm. Leaving by 9 am is perfect. I like driving through L.A. at night, ( 10 pm.) most people that are in a hurry are at home already. Camping off of the 101 depends on the size of your coach. Check out the following web sites: AAA.com, Camp-California.com and rvjournal.com.

What size M/H? I agree timing is important. 10 to 210 in the AM (10:30-11:00) work s well. On 210 around Pasadena be careful to be in right lane as you must veer right and as I recall the signage is not that great.

12 miles South of Carpenteria is Rincon parkway county park that parallels the ocean. Dry Camping, but its great. All spaces are 45' with the only available toad parking in that space. One can park the toad T boned to the coach and it works.

Only if you want to stay on the 210W, if you want to go 134 to the 101, stay to the left and you will run straight into the 134. If you take the 210W you will end up at the 118 or I-5. 210W route has less traffic in the a.m. I live in Altadena, just north of Pasadena. I always take the 210W to 5N to 126W to 101N. 126 to 101 is a nice drive.

Thank you for the additional info...that's exactly the route I take on 210W.

As far as Rincon Parkway...when I had my 36' Dynsaty I parked it in a 45' space with the toad T-boned in the front of the M/H. The view is spectacular and the dolphins plentiful as they cruise up and down the ocean or occaisionally surf the waves

We traveled this route many times, we have a 36' 5'r, I would go the 210 to the 118. The 134 & 101 are just too busy any time of day. The other route 138 to the 14 is even better but it's slower. We go back to Ventura every winter and avoid as much L A traffic as possible, it's never good, there's always a goober pulling in front of us.

I agree with Goldwinger on the 210-5-126-101 part but don't forget that the 210 now runs all the way from Redlands to San Fernando so you don't have to go through Fontana, Ontario, Pomona, and that whole rough section of I-10. I waited a long time for them to complete that link.
